Linking up with Nicole from Frontier Dreams and her Crafting On Blog Hop.

I’m a little late this week with my ‘Crafting On’ link:) I had a wonderful day yesterday, getting together with my sister-in-law (Marianne Meyer of Midnight Stitching Designs) and meeting a new stitching friend. We met at the cutest little coffee shop and stitched and talked for a while. The new friend had to go to pick up her boys after a while so Marianne and I stitched a bit longer, went out for lunch and the visited a quilting shop before I headed back home. They meet each week, but as it takes me an hour to get there, I only am able to go every now and then. It was really nice to get out of the house and meet up with some like-minded sisters:)

I haven’t only been stitching and gabbing around here:) I’ve also been crocheting…

‘John Deere’ inspired baby blanket for a friend.

And knitting…

Basic ‘vanilla’ socks

I really needed another knitting project going!! hahahahaha  But I am super excited to have started my first pair of socks. This was the whole reason I wanted to learn to knit in the first place!!! After looking for a couple years at instructions that I didn’t understand, I decided to take the plunge. I still don’t quite understand what I am suppose to do once I get to the heal flap, but I figure there is always You-tube for that:) I also am pretty sure I want to try every other way to knit socks other than on dpns, but it was the one way that I knew how to get started, so I went with it. It is my goal to fill up my sock drawer with hand-knits, so I guess I’ll have lots of opportunity to learn all the different ways of knitting them:)

Off to see what everyone else was up to this week!!
